Who are the people who voted on these? Are they doing anything to tell the consumer electronics industry NOT to abandon home 3D?

Notes:
  • Overall, mostly good choices. It would be nice for them to release a list of select nominees for each category, even the smaller ones, to bring more attention to good 3D films.
  • Maybe Doctor Strange and Billy Lynn should have switched major awards with Doctor Strange being the better executed story, but Billy Lynn pioneering Native 4K HFR 3D.
  • Robinson Crusoe: The Wild Life should have won Best Animated Stereography, and The Secret Life of Pets or Kung Fu Panda 3 could have been a 2nd place option. Kubo is probably my favorite animated film of 2016 and has a couple fun pop-outs, but it is way too flat.
  • I don't know why they eliminated the Best Use of Native 3D category.
  • I'd rather see something like Fantastic Beasts win Best 3D Conversion due to more pop-outs and 3D thinking, even if Rogue One has a technically better conversion in terms of volumetric depth and 3D shaping.
  • Great to see Mojin getting a jury prize, even if it's a year late, but there's no mention of 2016's foreign 3D films like Sword Master, The Monkey King 2, The Mermaid, Rudolf the Black Cat, Little Door Gods, The Bacchus Lady, etc.
  • I wish we could see these yearly Live Action Short winners in 3D.
  • More Sky 3D wins for David Attenborough documentaries, even though Micro Monsters was made in 2013 and is just being re-purposed for IMAX. National Parks Adventure would have been another good choice. It just about swept the Giant Screen Awards.

Doctor Strange is certainly a worthy choice, but personally I would've gone with Fantastic Beasts. Although Doctor Strange was definitely deserving for "Journey of Surreal Astral Projection" in the best scene award.

Kubo and Rogue One are two films that definitely wouldn't have made my list at all. Laika's stereoscopy has never been as good as on Coraline, their first film, and Kubo was perhaps their flattest film conceptually. It's almost like an episode of Samurai Jack, broad brush strokes horizontally across a canvas. Not a lot of overlapping layers or vanishing lines receding into perspective. Aside from the origami figures, the 3D was mostly incidental.

I didn't find it much of a showcase for 3D, but perhaps Star Wars: Rogue One deserves an award for capable work despite limited potential. Given the nature of the cinematography and the shallow depth of field in many scenes.

Robinson Crusoe/The Wildlife definitely deserved to win something for its stereoscopy if nothing else. Unfortunately it looks like it wasn't even nominated.

yes, yes it should have been ... and wow, 'Kung Fu Panda 3' suffered from being released too early in the year

Yeah, out of that long list, no nominations for some of the more notable 3D films of the year:

The Jungle Book
X-Men: Apocalypse
Ghostbusters: Answer the Call
Warcraft: The Beginning
Robinson Crusoe: The Wild Life

I thought The Jungle Book had miserably conservative depth, but so did Kubo, and it won. Maybe these films were not submitted by their respective studios, perhaps to reduce competition with another movie the studio felt more favorable about. No idea. It's not the best process--however the Society handles these selections.

guess I saw this at the optimal format - IMAX laser, but I thought the 3D was very good, not great, but for a movie shot in native 3D it worked more so than 'Kubo' which was middling at best.

I thought four of the best 3D sequences of the year were from the movies you mentioned.

X-Men: Apocalpyse - the destruction of the school
The Jungle Book - Kaa the snake slowing moving toward's Mowgli's (ours) face
Ghostbusters - dive into the vortex (on a proper 4:3 IMAX screen this was jawdropping)
The Wild Life - race down the water tressel.
